arguments in a case aimed at preventing texas from implementing a photo i.d. law that the justice department says could disenfranchise more than one million voters. this came as the obama administration reluctantly agreed to give florida permission to use a federal data base that will enable that state to move forward with a purge of voters who they believe are not registered properly or are noncitizens. a poll released yesterday on that shows that 54% of florida voters support that approach. joy-ann reid, we have talked a lot about voter i.d. we talk about it because it's important, it's a big story, and because it's political, because every voter i.d. law that has passed in the last four years has been a party line republican effort, although there have been some republican governors here and there who have pushed back. what you look at in texas is a little different. the supreme court has said look, you can require a photo i.d. they had that in a case in indiana. that is the current law. what's going on in texas relates more to the history of racism and segregation in voting and basically

-- the audience here was texas, donors, independent voters. it was not about the people in the room. think about what george bush did when he was a candidate in 2000. talk about the soft bigotry of expectations and no child left behind. even if you disagree, he tried to come with something. john mccain when he went last cycle, he acknowledged the history of having the first african-american candidate. romney didn't any of those kinds of things. he attacked -- called him my opponent a couple times in addition to going after obama care. the other thing i find hypocritical. he was perfectly happy to invoke his father who does have an impressive record when it comes to an issue like this, but he runs away from his father's record when it comes to transparency and releasing his tax records. major hypocrisy. >> he also seems to run away from his father in terms of his father showing courage in terms of marching with civil rights and standing up for civil rights issues, i believe his mother met dr. king. you have to ask yourself is mitt romney showing the same kind of outreach and the same kind of risk

. in closing arguments this friday, attorneys for the state of texas argued the state should be released once and for all from the department of its voting business which was clearly authorized. the case is widely expected to wind up before the supreme court where we find the five appointees declaring it's no longer justified. the portion of the act at issue covers nine states and counties and townships and seven others largely in the south that have a history of erecting barriers. in year's past, this took a variety of forums and grandfather tastes that stopped newly formed slaves from voting and literacy tests or simple poll taxes that forced people to pay to vote f they could afford it. after one of the most powerful and courageous social movements in history, one that took the lives of 40 people, lbg signed the voting act in 1975 ending these practices. >> wherever by clear and objective standards, states and counties are using regulations or laws or tests to deny the right to vote. then they will be struck down. if it is clear that state officials still intend to discriminate, then feder

where he declared that texas would be a swing state. that was a jaw dropping. he did his best to clarify what he had said a couple of days earlier. let's see if you think he accomplishes that task. >> the history of how he built the country was everyone having a chance to pursue their dreams and together building an opportunity that made us the envy of the world and so i don't believe that we should try once again something that didn't work. but we need to keep pursuing a strategy that said let's make the investments in the american people that will help us grow but also create ladders of opportunity for everybody. >> steve: we are all in this together was it is tune. and don't dwell on the gloomy numbers that are out there. better times and brighter days are around the corner. stick with me. >> gretchen: if i was a obama surrogate like corey booker and others i wouldn't want to go on to say we agree. we had the mayor of tampa who happened to get the question and he didn't agree with it. so if you have a mayor in the town in florida who doesn't agree with it. you have to wonder about the
